Welcome to the world of the distributed workforce

Months of working from home have whetted the appetites of millions for a lifestyle that offers greater flexibility.

But while digital communications platforms, home internet, and digital devices have reduced the impact on productivity associated with home working, it has also raised the issue of how to properly service a new distributed workforce in the long term.

The fact remains that without the proper equipment, the right tools, and sufficient personnel to deal with the issues that come with flexible working, the problems will keep mounting.

Not surprisingly, many organisations are still reluctant to fully embrace the idea of a distributed workforce. One of the main reasons is that they simply don’t have the internal resources to supply, maintain, and support the equipment and services that a distributed workforce requires.

Why Managed Digital Workspace

With many years of experience in the field, Quadris is already in the driving seat when it comes to helping organisations realise the substantial business and economic benefits that come with flexible working patterns.

Our Managed Digital Workspace service is quite simply the easiest and safest way to budget for IT equipment while ensuring your workforce has the very latest and most productive tools.

For a single monthly per user fee, we take full responsibility for ensuring that everyone has the computer equipment, applications, phones, peripherals, and associated support that they need to carry out their work.

It doesn’t matter if they are office based or work from home, you can rest assured that they will all receive unrivalled service and expert assistance.

Below are some of the key ways that Quadris can help you overcome the barriers to creating a truly efficient and flexible distributed workforce.

  • All equipment such as a new laptop, phone, and any peripherals are sent out to new starters ready for their first day on the job – whether they be located in the office or at home. All they have to do is switch on, login, and they are ready to start work
  • If employees have any problems or need any advice or assistance whatsoever, help is at hand 24/7/365
  • We ensure that everyone receives regular security updates to help prevent any actions that might lead to loss of company data
  • Software packages are deployed centrally and available on demand
  • Anti-virus software is always switched on and up to date
  • All software and applications are regularly updated, thereby avoiding any mass recalls of hardware
  • OS and software security patches are regularly implemented in order to address vulnerabilities and fix bugs
  • Internet browsers are protected and secured
  • Central security policies are applied to devices to protect users from compromised USB devices
  • We develop a close working knowledge of your IT requirements and systems, thereby helping us to further streamline and improve your operations
  • We also offer a range of additional services, such as improving users’ home broadband by augmenting it using future-focused software defined solutions.

As a result of all the above, we free you up from the vast majority of work involved in supplying, maintaining and supporting computer equipment, phones, and peripherals. Thereby greatly simplifying your IT management, reducing internal costs, and most importantly leaving you with more time to concentrate on higher value work.
